Batman is Good Enough, Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People LIKE Him Wednesday!

Please be advised that Batman....


.... has more important things to do than make speeches.

However, if you'll note the panel in the center of this page:


Batman apparently gives a lecture daily. By the oiled pectorals of Fabio, how lame is that?

This was a classic moment where Batman gets his feelings hurt by lack of public support. Because if the public won't support you, what's the point of being a masked vigilante operating outside the law?

Even at the end of the story, Bats is fishing for compliments:


In all the psychoanalytical articles I've read about Batman's issues, I've never seen anyone touch on this crippling self-esteem situation. It's kind of sad, really. Someone needs a hug!

See you tomorrow!

LOL! I love the punchline. Obviously, the public failed to notice him and his insecurities and low self esteem issues sunk in leading to the Dark Knight story arc. :-)

Comics Make No Sense...maybe, But they sure used ta be a lot more fun!

What do you suppose was the topic of some of Batman's other nightly "lectures"? The mind reels!

How about a lecture on how to violate due process and police brutality laws while still giving scheduled lectures in a public setting, and never getting arrested?

I guess writing for comics is hard sledding.
